WildPackets and Aruba
Leveraging the extensible nature of WildPackets’ OmniAnalysis Platform, Aruba and WildPackets have worked together to develop an integrated solution that lets Aruba air monitors feed 802.11 packet captures directly into WildPackets’ OmniPeek software, allowing network engineers to identify, quantify and analyze both common and out-of-the-ordinary wireless network issues. Using a single management interface, network engineers can quickly transition one or more APs from network mode to capture mode, eliminating the need travel to the trouble area, and eliminating the need for complex and expensive overlay sensor networks. Effective troubleshooting requires immediate access to packets, both at the wireless source and on the wired network segment. With this solution, packet captures can be started the instant a problem is reported, both at the wireless source and on the wired network segment, allowing network engineers to capture critical network data as the problem is occurring. Save time, save money, extend your reach.
